Nickel free strings?

Hi all! Ok, I don't know if this exists, or if I am just weird, but does anyone know of nickel free strings? I have strong nickel allergy and I try to avoid all nickel (I have to buy my belts at nickelfreebelts.com, I have to buy my pants from Levi's, I even have to eat low nickel foods, etc). Is there anyone that sells nickel free strings?

D'addario Steel strings for example.

Unsure if they are 100% nickel free, but they are mostly steel atleast and sound quite different from nickel wounds. They should be available in any well stocked guitar shop.

I bet the coating on Elixirs would keep the nickel off of your fingers, might want to give those a try. Otherwise, try the Ernie Ball and D'Addario stainless steel strings.

Try something new

Not sure if cobalt has same chemical properties as nickel, but there ya go since they weren't mentioned before.
